Supernatural: Folklore

The Otherworldly Visit Of The Green Children Of Woolpit?

For most people, myths and legends from folklore are merely stories, often with hidden morality tales in order to pass lessons on down the generations. Indeed, before written records, these “oral traditions” were the only way such legends survived and were remembered.

However, there are some researchers that suggest – at least in some cases – that these legends and myths have a certain degree of truth to them. And what’s more, they might be the remnants of memories from an age all but forgotten, perhaps from such mysterious lands as Atlantis, and intriguing times when “the gods” ruled the planet and walked among humans.

Might many of the tales from folklore really tell of a time long before our own accepted beginnings on Earth? Might there really have been a lost advanced civilization who are recalled still, thousands, perhaps millions of years later, through the creation stories and mythology of various countries around the world, many of which share very distinct similarities to each other?

Perhaps a serious study of the tales of folklore might reveal more truths about our history and existence than we currently realize…

The Bone-Chilling Case Of Mercy Brown

The Bell Witch – One Of Many Haunting Accounts Across History

The origins of the Bell Witch – arguably the most well-known of such accounts in the United States – go back to the early-1800s.
